Holy smokes!  I just received 2 grommets from JD yesterday, and they are amazing!  The quality and overall fit/finish is spot on.

Here are some pictures - thanks, JD!  Chug a Lug

I agree that the grommets are great and much needed. I thought I would mention while a perfect picture is available to illustrate that the brackets and the rivets on the buckets are not supposed to be painted black.This is a common restoration mistake. The brackets are riveted on after the bucket is painted black at the factory .The brackets,adjusting screws, and rivets are silver.  The best way is to do it is just like the factory . That does take a special rivet tool.  Some will zinc the entire bucket and mask off the bracket before painting. The least desirable but better then black brackets is masking the bucket and painting the brackets a zinc looking paint. To me the black painted brackets are more visually obvious then the grommets.This is meant to be helpful and not critical.

Ruben, is that a bug on your radiator?  Unless we can carbon date it back to October of 1966, that's at least 5 points off in judging. Grin

 Hysterical

Yes, that bug IS from October 1966.  In fact, it was wearing a Zipper Neck Velour Shirt from what I can tell.
